HIST: noids

I have two brown TB that I can't identify but I am sure that if I saw the names of either of them I would be able to identify them.
One is a reddish brown self but a lot more brown than red. It is lightly ruffled and has a brown beard with a slightly lighter brown around the beard.

The other is a yellowish brown but again more brown than yellow. It is lightly ruffled, has a light orange beard with yellow on the shoulders of the falls.

Could you please suggest some names that these descriptions might fit? I would really appreciate your help.

One other iris that I need help with is a bright yellow plicata. the standards have a 1 inch +- brown edge. The beard is yellow tipped brown. There is a white wedge under the tip of the beard and down about 1/2" on the fall. There is a narrow brown plicata marking around the edge of the falls. Both the standards and the falls are ruffled.

Many of my NOIDS were gifts from a friend who ordered from Roris and had them shipped to me when they were dug. I believe many of them were in collections and I do not have catalogs to determine which iris they could be. We moved about a hundred miles from the home where these were originally planted and many of the tags were separated from the rhizomes as they were transported in the bed of our pickup. I have searched the catalogs I have but these were iris that I received each year for about six years prior to 1999. Browns are almost non existent in catalogs today.

Thank you for any help you may offer.
